During all the fanfare of the presidential inauguration Monday in Washington, D.C., the cameras focused closely on the players of the day, potentially making it difficult for viewers at home to take in the big picture.

You're in luck. The New York Times developed an interactive photo-graphic that shows you exactly who sat where during Obama's address in front of the Capitol building.

As with any important event, seating placement is often telling. Everyone has their own seating cliques -- family members, senators, representatives, governors, mayors, performers. But is the section where actress Eva Longoria is sitting significant? We'll let you be the judge of that.

The graphic isn't embeddable, so you'll have to check it out on the New York Times here.

The Washington Post too has a photo-graphic that has even more capabilities. You can zoom around the image (even out into the crowd in front of the stage on the Mall and tag people in the picture on Facebook.
